This 2 DVD set has both full-screen and Widescreen versions of two of the best-loved stories ever written. Wonderfully acted and costumed with wonderful scenery to capture the hearts of children, especially young girls. 5 stars for these two movies from Warner Brothers.

Double dose of Francis Hodgeson Burnett

(5 out of 5 stars)
"A Little Princess, a classic story of a little girls hope, that has been remade several times, is presented in this two disc set.
The secret garden is another classic tale, that has been retold many times.
These movies are presented on 2 double sided DVD's, each one featuring a wide screen and a full screen version.
There are not many special features on the DVD's, but if you just want the movies, then this is the set for you."
The BEST Secret Garden

"I had a unique FORTUNATE experience to have Kate Maberly all to myself several times... it's not that way folks ! The one and only theater in my town (Fairborn, Ohio) was shutting down in about 1995 or so and the last show(s) I remember playing were "The Secret Garden". I know I snuck away from (Computer Science) classes to see Kate because she was SOOO! cute and she had that British accent nailed down!
Kate's is the VERY BEST that you will see for the "Secret Garden", but Amelia Shankley's is the VERY, VERY BEST that you will ever see for "A Little Princess"... you will cry and cry and thank God that Amelia has more guts than you do. Amelia endures tortures that we can only thank the Lord we don't need to go through.
